High-precision Rotation Speed that compares to Direct-drive

This drive system employs a new PRS3 (Platter Rotation Speed Servo System) that detects insensible changes of the platter rotation speed by a contactless optical sensor settled at the spindle base, and controls motor speed after calculation by an on-board microcomputer. It realizes a Belt-drive mechanism with higher precision that is not outdone by Direct-drive turntables. The TN-570 achieved both sleek design and cogging-free rotation precision that compares to a Direct-drive.

What is PRS3?
PRS3 (Platter Rotation Sensing Servo System) is a non-contact type servo system that monitors rotation speed of the platter. By reading the encoder pattern on a circular plate that is directly connected to the axis of the platter with an optical sensor, the TN-570's servo computer with unique algorithm controls the DC motor to maintain accurate rotation speed of the platter where a vinyl disc is located, while conventional servo system monitors/controls rotation speed of the motor that may not be exactly the same as that of platter due to slip or deflection of the belt, unless an over-weight platter is employed for inertia moment. With the PRS3, the TN-570 achieved both low-profile cabinet and high precision rotation speed with <0.1% of wow-and-flutters and <±0.2% of rotating speed deviation.

High-precision Spindle and Anti-static Carbon-coated Base

By applying carbon coating to the spindle bearing, hardness is increased and electrification is controlled, providing excellent static electricity performance.

Large Torque Motor with a floating structure

Employing a rubber cushion, a large torque motor is settled to float when attached to the chassis. This suppresses the transmission of vibrations from the motor to the chassis.

Electrical-controlled Speed Selector

The speed selector employs an electronically-controlled speed changing mechanism between 33-1/3 rpm and 45 rpm, which does not require bothersome processes of changing the pulley to another one with different diameter.

Not only speed selector knob, an EP adapter employs a machined aluminum knob for prestigious feeling.

Clear Acrylic Platter that merges elegance with silence

The 16mm-thick full-size platter made of acrylic resin with high transparency, shines beautifully, reflecting the surroundings according to the light level suppresses unwanted sympathetic vibrations. Together with the pattern of the artificial marble, it presents a unique elegance.

Flat-type Belt

A flat belt is employed to reliably transmit energy to the motor drive. A urethane flat belt that has little stretch is employed to reliably drive the acrylic platter. It is also very quiet and provides excellent durability.

Chassis with Dual Layer structure realizes both weight and style

The cabinet employs artificial marble with high-density MDF. By combining different materials in a two-layer structure, this design abates their inherent resonant frequencies and realizes a clear sound, allowing the artists voices, which are inscribed in the grooves of the record, to come out vividly.
The artificial marble not only contributes to the elegant appearance, it is also excellent in terms of weight, allowing the turntable to realize a heaviness of about 9 kg while retaining a slim and stylish form. While it has a rigid structure, it is also able to assure a high feedback margin.

Newly designed Tone-arm with Anti-skating Mechanism

The static-balanced S-shaped tone-arm features high flexibility. You can adjust the tone-arm height optimally for the shell and cartridge you are using. Also, a high-quality PC-Triple C* conductor cables are employed for the tone-arm cable, so that the phono signal captured by the needle from the delicate vinyl record is transmitted with pure quality.

MM-type Cartridges by audio-technica

An MM-type cartridge equivalent to audio-technica AT100E is already installed at the factory, as the universal type head-shell employs PC-Triple C wiring for pure signal travel.

Built-in Phono Equalizing Amplifier

Since a phono equalizing amplifier is built-in, you'll enjoy vinyl record sound by connecting the TN-570 directly to an existing amplifier that do not equip phono inputs. In addition, the phono equalizing amplifier employs an OPA1602 SoundPlus® Op-amp which is designed to provide high quality audio. The detailed analog signal transmitted from the cartridge is restored to the original audio signal without distortion and lossless.

Optical/USB Digital and Phono/Line Analog Outputs

With a high-precision A/D converter made by Cirrus Logic, the TN-570 delivers optical digital output up to 192kHz/24-bit PCM which is equivalent to Hi-Res Audio, while a USB output delivers up to 48kHz/16-bit digital audio to your PC. These two outputs allows you to save your vinyl collection digitally on a PC/Mac or CD-R/RW discs for car hi-fi, or enjoy superior details of the sound by connecting to your favorite D/A Converter unit.

In the analog audio output part, a pair of gold-plated RCA Pin jacks deliver either Phono or Line level output to fit your existing hi-fi system.

Honeycomb-shaped Bottom Case

The bottom cover employs a honeycomb pattern that prevents unwanted sympathetic vibrations. The thin bottom cover, which melds into the stylish design, uses a honeycomb structure for the interior to prevent unwanted sympathetic vibrations.

Height Adjustable Feet

The four machined aluminum feet can have their heights adjusted independently. This allows the turntable to be set up on surfaces that are not flat. In addition, rubber with excellent cushioning is used between where the feet are installed and the body of the unit to suppress the feedback of sound to the cabinet.

Detachable Dust Cover

By removing the dust cover from the unit, you and your guests will enjoy to see how music revives from vinyl record.

Optional Turntable sheet made of Japanese "WASHI" paper sold separately

Turntable sheets are typically made of silicon rubber, felt or cork, for example. As result of investigating various materials, however, we concluded that Japanese paper "WASHI" is suitable in terms of both design and performance. This is the first time that WASHI, which has good vibration suppression and static electricity resistance as well as great style, has been employed for turntable sheets. (Sold separately)。
